When despair for the world grows in me
And I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my families’ lives may be,
I go and lie down where the yogis
rest in their beauty on mats, and our great teachers lead.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not practice yoga with forethought
of failure. I come into the presence of stillness.
And I move through sun and moon salutations,
absorbing all their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of Sadhana and am free.

Hello, my name is Dale Hills. I am a retired teacher who started practicing yoga at Sadhana in 2010. As my interest deepened, I practiced more, studied more, learned more. And I have further to go on this journey. Come to Sadhana. I might be there to sign you in. It is a magical place.
